Shotwell 0.15 Released, Adds Color Adjustment Pasting, Various Fixes

Shotwell, the premier photo management app for Linux, has just seen a new update pushed out by Yorba, the development team behind it.
What�s new? Not an awful lot that you can play with but there are two useful additions to the �Adjust� feature.

New Adjust Features

Firstly, Shotwell 0.15 provides a new option for adjusting the �Highlights� of an image. This is useful in cases where you want to enhance the detail in brighter sections of a photo.
Then, once you�ve made some tweaks, you can copy and paste color adjustments between photos. After applying any changes made with the Adjust tool, hit Shift + Ctrl + C (or click Photo > Copy Color Adjustment) to copy your changes to the clipboard.

Bug Fixes

Elsewhere there are a number of fixes for video handling: 
  • YouTube plugin now uses OAuth / OpenID
  • Videos in Missing Files now re-import properly
  • Improvements when thumbnailing videos

Installing Shotwell 0.15 in Ubuntu

Shotwell 15 comes as default in Ubuntu 13.10, due October 17th.
If you�re using Ubuntu 12.10 or 13.04 then you can upgrade to this release by adding the Yorba PPA.
Open up a new Terminal window and enter the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install shotwell
